Syd Barrett ‎– The Madcap Laughs

The Madcap Laughs is singer-songwriter Syd Barrett's debut solo album from 1970.
The album was recorded after Barrett left Pink Floyd, of which he was co-founder and frontman, in 1968.

The work has an eventful genesis. Work on the album began in April 1968; however, the content was not completed until August 1969. Syd Barrett ultimately needed four producers to create it: Peter Jenner, Malcolm Jones, David Gilmour and Roger Waters.
The guest musicians called in included Robert Wyatt, Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge (all from Soft Machine) and Willie Wilson, with whom Gilmour had played on Jokers Wild
